Should the TTrial doctors choose to test hormone levels with capillary blood spot or (accurate) saliva testing in men who are being given 75 mg of AndroGel daily, they will find them to be grossly overdosed, and will undoubtedly be showing signs of testosterone overdose such as irritability (“testiness”), impulsiveness, violence and excessive libido. Excess testosterone also tends to negate the benefits of testosterone supplementation, which include better mood, increased energy, clearer thinking, increased muscle mass and improved heart disease and diabetes markers.
Progesterone - Another of the female sex hormones. It works in the body to balance the effects of estrogen and is often referred to as the relaxing hormone. Progesterone is produced after ovulation by the corpus luteum (sack that the egg comes from) and dominates the second half of the cycle (luteal phase). Progesterone¹s main job is to control the build up of the uterine lining and help mature and maintain the uterine lining if there is a pregnancy. If there is no pregnancy, our progesterone levels fall and the lining of the uterus is shed, beginning the menstrual cycle.
Clinical research still hasn’t determined a hard threshold level for when symptoms of low T begin appearing . Some recent research suggests that symptoms of low T might begin appearing in men when their total testosterone level dips below 320 ng/dl . According to anecdotal evidence from the owner of Peak Testosterone, many men start noticing low T symptoms when their total testosterone dips into the 400s . Of course, it’s anecdotal, so take it for what it’s worth, but it’s probably a good idea to stay above 500 ng/dl if you don’t want to experience symptoms of low T.
